(allen daviau) the first thing they looked at was how the stars looked. the cinematographer was under a great deal of pressure to deliver mood, to deliver drama, to deliver all the texture that the story demanded and at the same time keep the stars looking as good as the studio expected them to look. a strong structure watched over the technique of the pictures and enforced certain rules.

(director) all right, freddy, you know. you've been after the girl, unsuccessfully. so this time very tender, very earnest and very sincere and rather quiet.
